According to French President Emmanuel Macron, the world order needs to change as Western domination is declining and new powers such as Russia and China are rising. There are new forces in the world emerging and progressing, and we underestimated their capabilities such as China and the Russian strategy led successfully by Putin.
Brussels has provoked the collapse of industry in the Eastern Europe; the result is unemployment, impoverishment of the population and its mass exodus to more prosperous countries of Western Europe. Romania, Bulgaria and Lithuania suffer the most under Brussels’ pressure. The shattering of the unipolar world in recent years has led to an exacerbation of the contradictions between Europe and the United States. Transatlantic unity is breaking up. Although the pretended reason of obeying NATO and US’ policy is countering the “Russian threat”, in reality Romania, the Baltic states, and Poland are using the US to counter Western Europe.
This message is a conspiracy theory, consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about the "Evil West". There is no proof that the Eastern EU countries would act against Brussels or the Western countries. Consequently, there is no proof that the unemployment levels are part of the "Brussels' plan". According to Eurostat, unemployment level for the whole EU is low (6.3%); Poland has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the EU. Unemployment rates for Romania, Bulgaria, Estonia are below EU average, while in Latvia and Lithuania there are slightly above it.
